Last Saturday, on December 12th 2009, Internet Marketing Inc.’s New York City office launched its first holiday party ever. With little under a year of existence, IMI NY has won a strong book of business and surpassed many milestones these last few months. Partner and President, Todd Soiefer, invited the team to a holiday party to celebrate this success and ring in the new year “Internet Marketing” style.
The party was a huge success, with the attendance of several staff members- interns, developers and all. A surprising guest appearance was made by the CEO of Internet Marketing Inc., Brent Gleeson, who is based in the San Diego office. His arrival not only added an element of surprise, but also much entertainment as well.
The party involved a champagne toast and then a sushi dinner at New Ashiya in downtown Manhattan. It was hard to even hear normal conversation over the continuous ruckus of laughter that practically usurped the night. I am honestly surprised anyone had time to eat.
So you may ask: what’s my point? It’s the small things that count. Having a holiday party for your employees really inspires good cheer and let’s them know how much they truly are appreciated when it really counts. If you don’t already do it, I suggest you make it your next New Years resolution- not only will good memories be shared but the team bonding is priceless.
